Ingredients

  • 5 small zucchini (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 Ounces crumbled feta
  • One frozen 9-inch regular or whole-wheat pie crust

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Slice 1 zucchini very thinly and set aside. Grate the remaining zucchini, firmly squeezing them by the handful to remove as much liquid as possible.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and eggs. Reserve ½ cup of the cheese, and then stir the grated zucchini and remaining cheese into the egg mixture.

Transfer to the pie crust, top with the sliced zucchini (arranging it in circles, if you like) and reserved cheese, and bake until firm and golden brown, 50-55 minutes. Set aside to let cool, and then serve warm or cold.

Zucchini Shopping Tip

Buy zucchini that is intact and has glossy skin. Avoid zucchini with brown or soft spots.

Zucchini Cooking Tip

Zucchini has a very high water content, lightly salt your zucchini prior to cooking so your dish does not become to watery.
